Floral dresses are well known for the girly and cute vibes that it brings out in the person who wears them, and this is not a vibe that everyone with a floral dress wants to show off. While some people like this cute and girly vibe, there are some who like to give off a more edgy vibe on some occasions.
If you are someone who falls into this category, you will find this article helpful as here, we are going to cover how you can make your floral dress edgier.
With that said, without any further delay, let's dive right in.
Top up your floral dress with a leather jacket
A black leather jacket is always one element of an outfit that screams "badass". Pairing up a black leather jacket with your dark color floral-printed dress is a perfect way to take the edginess of the outfit to the next level. This is not something that you can only wear with short floral dresses, but with long floral dresses as well. You can also accessories yourself with a black neckband and a pair of black high heels to complete the edgy bad-girl look. This is a bit of a goth look but is perfect for giving off that edgy vibe, but you can control the gothyness with your makeup.
For example, if you need to output a more gothic vibe, you can use some darker make up whereas on the other hand, you can use lighter makeup if you need to dial down on the gothic look. Either way, you will get the edginess you want.
Black boots, a pair of sunglasses, and a floral dress
Pairing your short floral dress with a pair of black leather boots and a good pair of dark sunglasses is also a great way to get that edgy look with minimal styling elements. This outfit has that confident boss vibe to it and does not require any other styling accessories either. The only thing to keep in mind here is that you must choose a darker floral dress than a light-colored floral dress to ensure you do not lose that edgy vibe. Unlike the above styling option we discussed, this styling option does not bring a goth vibe out as well.
Jean jacket, a pair of sunglasses, and a floral dress
You must be thinking, “a jean jacket? Really?”. Although a jean jacket does not provide that edgy vibe at once, it will be able to get you a slightly edgy look when you style it properly with other accessories. The jean jacket will provide you with a playful look until you put on a pair of dark sunglasses which completely changes the overall look and give you that slight edgy look. This is perfect for someone who does not want to output a heavy edgy vibe. You also don't have to worry about having a dark floral dress, you can wear a bright-colored floral dress like you see in the picture below and still have that edgy vibe with you. In terms of footwear, here you can opt-in for a pair of white sneakers or a pair of high heels/boots as per your preference.
Floral dress, a pair of knee-high boots, and a dark hat
If you are going for a slightly edgy look, then a dark hat paired with a short floral dress and knee-high boots is another great choice. While the dress and the hat give off that stylish and playful vibe, the knee-high boots will add that “boss” vibe to your outfit. You can accessories this outfit even more with a leather handbag and a pair of sunglasses to take it a step further. Also, in terms of the knee-high boots, it does not have to be black in color, you can opt-in for a light brown or any other color that matches well with your floral dress. It does not always have to be black boots and black dresses to come out as edgy, you can do so with light colors as well. You just have to know how to style them properly to get the look you desire.
Long Floral dress with a pair of white sneakers
A long floral dress with a pair of white sneakers will not always give off that edgy vibe, but if you style it properly you can definitely get it to work. Here, just any color long floral dress won't work, you have to have a dark-colored floral dress paired up with a pair of white sneakers, no other type of shoe will work here as well. The white sneakers with the long floral dress give off that “bad girl” vibe where you can take it a step further with a pair of dark sunglasses. In terms of the long floral dress, make sure to use a split dress here as they tend to have that "badass" vibe to them as we see in some action movies.
There you have it, some of the best ways you can make your typical cute and friendly vibe floral dress into a more edgy look. As you may now know, small styling accessories like sunglasses, hats, and shoes can have a major impact on your outfits.
